Another volunteer writes: Got toys? Then Angeline wants to meet you!An adorable peanut with ears that reach for the sky, Angeline wastes no time in finding a toy and/or a ball with which to amuse herself. Happy to play by herself, jumping up on the bench with her tennis balls, Angeline sweetly gives me a kiss which is no easy feat considering there’s a ball in her mouth!! Her tail wags as she settles down for some chomping, Showing off her sit when asked, Angeline takes a treat gently and runs off in pursuit of another ball. Angeline enjoys time in group, soliciting attention and becoming vocal play. Angeline means Angel and indeed our little girl is just that.Doing so well on her behavior assessment the team feels she’ll do well in a home with average dog experience, she’s waiting for her new person to find her. As always, a meet and greet with a resident dog is recommended. Our Angel, our Angeline is waiting – we’ll even send her home with a couple of tennis balls!
Angeline came into our center after she was found as a stray with wounds of unknown origin on her legs. She was very shy and gentle upon intake, walks well on leash. Angeline was social and interactive upon entering SAFER assessment room, body soft and wiggly. She allowed her head to be cupped in assessor’s hands, eyes averted. Angeline leaned into assessor during Sensitivity item, lip lick, ears back. She was distracted and unresponsive during Tag game, but approached assessor at end of game and playfully jumped up. Angeline did not pull her paw back on both Squeeze attempts, first attempt sniffing hand, second attempt mouthing with no pressure. She kept a very firm grip on Toy, carrying it around the room in her mouth and never really settling, but was loose and wiggly when approached by assess-a-hand. Angeline approached the helper dog quickly, tail at spine level and body not stiff, fast wagging tail. The Behavior Team feels Angeline would do well in an Average home.
Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands.
Sensitivity: 2. Dog leans in and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, her tail is wagging, ears back, lip lick.
Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game, she is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor.
Squeeze 1: 1. Dog does not pull back paw, sniff hand.
Squeeze 2: 2. Dog gently places her open mouth over the Assessor’s hand without applying pressure.
Toy 1. Dog keeps a very firm grip and is loose and wiggly. She does not place her body between you and the toy.
Dog – dog 2. Dog approaches helper dog quickly with tail at spine level, body not stiff, ears relaxed, and lip neutral
